小綠: 欲將沈醉換悲涼

清早看牙醫。

義務工作也幹出無限煩惱。

上午送來了依士靈頓華人協會春季通訊;一看之下,我便詢問送貨的老闆娘,為什麼印的白色。她說幾年來,所有的顏色都用過了。我說春季也是農曆新年嘛!噢!她才如夢初醒。大抵在外國長間長了,寒盡不知年。

我倒覺得粉紅色或者紅色最好,是春節嘛!但白色代表純潔,也不俗。連最挑剔的會員也沒有什麼強烈意見。員工大部份都沒有大意見,但有一人表示強烈反對,反對有理。

世界上原沒有必對的事物。春季季刋可以套紅,固然應節。既然印了,也要考慮是否必須如此?時間上是否允許改印?都經已一月中了,季刋都只是包括一月至三月的活動。是否會浪費紙張、資源?而且農曆新年在二月十八日,一個月後這些什麼顏色恐怕也不成問題?財政上是否有額外開支?選擇顏色紙張,我會也要負上一定責任。兼且和印刷商關係一直良好,偶有閃失,是否可以海量?

要加印五百一千,也無大問題。反而是態度的問題,如何心平氣和地討論問題,找出最佳處理方法;不要各走極端,意氣用事;從錯誤中學習。

水太清則無魚,人太察則無徒。不是說志願服務不需要規矩方圓;但做人的工作,始終都要有人情味。在社區工作中,倚仗這麼多義工的無私奉獻,沒有了義工,只靠職工;一定會事倍功半。

晚參加倫敦大學「非州在非秩序的新世界」論壇。晤徐永祥大兄,一醉,遣悲凉。

嗨,你好,谢谢到访我的blog!你在伦敦待了多久?我在1997年陪先生到剑桥修读博士课程,当了三年的陪读太太。到过伦敦游玩,但还是比较喜欢宁静、风景如画的剑桥。在剑桥所渡过的农历新年非常没有春季气氛,我们只是夫妻俩静静地欢渡,思乡意浓。希望你们能一起热热闹闹地迎接60年一遇的金猪年!

I came to England in around 1990, actually I was doing my Master degree at City University in 1989-90, then resumed my work as an Arts Administrator with the Hong Kong Government. Cambridge is my favourite city, much much nicer thean Oxford!! Your written Chinese seem to be very fluent, it is amazing to learn that Malaysian Chinese can use write beautiful Chinese, people always think only those Taiwanese and Maninland Chinese can write good Chinese! My memories of Malaysia is Kuching where I got some friends and like the serenity of the place. With best regards.
